    Looking to replace R7000 for a wifi router with better range

    The house has only 1 plug point per room. So, if I have to connect another router or even move this router to the center of the house, I have to either get a power cable extender or run the ethernet cable all the way to the next room. Do you have any recommendations on DIY cable hiding methods...

    Looking to replace R7000 for a wifi router with better range

    I live in a 2 bed room 900 sqft house. My current router is a Netgear R7000. The router is located at one end of the house (cannot be moved since the internet optical fiber equipment is kept there). I get poor signal in one of the bed rooms and a bath room, and sometimes, no signal at all...

    Suggest a router

    I believe the problem is only for repeater mode. I haven't tried connecting with a cable though since the main router is in a different room.

    Suggest a router

    Sorry for the confusion. R7000 as a standalone router supports WPA2. The issue is when you are using two R7000s- one as router and the second as a wifi repeater. I have two R7000s. Due to range issues, I decided to use the second R7000 as a wifi repeater. In the official Netgear firmware, I...

    Suggest a router

    I am not sure if Netgear R7000 has good range compared to others. I have this router. Earlier I used to keep this in one room. If I sit in another room parallel to the first room (separated by a brick wall), there was no 5 ghz coverage. 2.4 ghz was not good enough either. I had to move the...

    What do you wear at home instead of pants?

    I am not a fan of underwears to be honest. They feel too restritive.

    What do you wear at home instead of pants?

    I grew up in a small town and didn't really bother about what to wear at home. Earlier, I just used to wear old nearly worn out pants. Recently, thought of moving to something better. I tried a couple of track pants. 2 of them bought for Rs. 500 each (from Big Bazaar) got damaged within 1-2...

    Please recommend a good container for storing non veg in freezer

    Thanks every one for your replies. I ended up getting one 0.8l and one 1.6l Borosil glass container from a local store. Using for the last 4 months without issues. This is the one I got: https://www.myborosil.com/square-dish-with-lid.html

    New cable TV Tariffs to put a hole in your pocket!

    My cable operator is charging 153.5 for the minimum 100 and also another 20 as service fee. They also said 2-3 weeks ago that there is a mandatory 30 rs STB maintenance contract fee, but looks like they later made it optional. NCF of 23.5 is in addition to this 153.5+20. I am keeping cable for...

    Please recommend a good container for storing non veg in freezer

    I am in the market for containers that can be used in refrigerator freezer for storing meat, fish and other non veg items. I liked the Tupperware Freezermate containers such as this 3.3l and this 650ml. But I am not sure if they are genuine since some of the comments say it may be fake. I looked...

    New cable TV Tariffs to put a hole in your pocket!

    The local cable guy came to my home finally. To get the minimum 100 channels, I need to pay 153.50 + 20. If I want to add even one more channel that cost just 0.50, I have to pay a NCF of 23.5. When asked why can't I add that channel in place of one from the 100, he said they cannot do it now...

    New cable TV Tariffs to put a hole in your pocket!

    Looks like this new rule will bankrupt cable operators. They are planning a nation wide strike on 24th by switching of signal. They say they need to charge minimum 180 from a customer to keep the business running (staff expenses, rent, electricity, cable etc). Now, if they charge 130 from...

    New cable TV Tariffs to put a hole in your pocket!

    Just received the new channel selection notice from my local operator. They added two new fees in addition to the minimum 153.40: a mandatory STB maintenance contract fee of 30 per month (that doesn't cover remote and physical damages) and a service fee of 20 per month. That makes the total...

    Swiggy executive refuses to deliver to marked location without valid address

    I had ordered a monitor from Amazon recently. Delivery guy asked me for the PIN and entered it in a handheld device I think before giving me the monitor. Its definitely a thing.

    What type of a monitor display is this?

    I took the monitor to LG service center. They said that it won't be covered under warranty since I removed it, and that it would cost 7000 to replace the display. Sure. Please feel free to post it there.

    What type of a monitor display is this?

    I recently bought a LG 24MP88HV monitor (Amazon link). I noticed that the display felt plastic (I was expecting glass). My first thought was may be it has a screen protector similar to phones. I looked at its edges and saw a plastic layer. I tried pulling it out thinking it was the screen...

    Swiggy executive refuses to deliver to marked location without valid address

    Recently ordered from Swiggy for the first time. Even though map was showing exact location with correct route, he went some where else. Called me angrily and I directed him. After handing over the food, he pulled out his phone and rated me 3/5 in front of me So, I gave him 2/5 instead of 5/5...
